Job 36:8-9


36:8 But if they are bound in chains, 1 

and held captive by the cords of affliction,

36:9 then he reveals 2  to them what they have done, 3 

and their transgressions,

that they were behaving proudly.

1 tn Dhorme thinks that the verse is still talking about kings, who may be in captivity. But this diverts attention from Elihu’s emphasis on the righteous.

2 tn The verb נָגַד (nagad) means “to declare; to tell.” Here it is clear that God is making known the sins that caused the enslavement or captivity, so “reveal” makes a good interpretive translation.

3 tn Heb “their work.”
